I decided to rewrite this profile, yet again. Since almost every profile I read on here sounds the same, I like the idea of saying something different.
There was a time when I had a very romantic view of what a relationship should be. It’s not that I’m a cynic now, it’s just that I’ve seen a lot recently which has shown me just how unhappy so many people out there are. I’d much rather stay single than be in an unhappy relationship. I think a lot of people have a tendency to jump into a relationship just to escape the pains of single life (I know I used to be that way). This is not to say that I’m anti-relationship, I’m just realistic about it. I’d prefer not to have to go through a divorce (no offense to anyone; I don’t mind dating a divorced person at all).
That all might sound very philosophical and vague, but what am I really saying here? Right now I work as a contractor, bartender, and a dancer in the entertainment industry. It may or may not be a long- term career, but that’s what I’m doing right now. After ten plus years of unhappily dedicating myself to a “career” and running a successful business, I fell into what has turned out to be the funnest job I’ve ever had. I’m only putting this out there because if you are interested in dating me, you should be o.k. with this. So what am I looking for? Well, I basically have two approaches to dating and I like to be very upfront about it. If I go out with a girl, I usually know pretty quickly if there is any future potential. I do still believe that there is someone out there that I could spend the rest of my life with, I don’t feel like just stringing a girl along for a few months without any future intention. To be very specific, I have no problem dating in a very open, casual sense with not many expectations, i.e. “for fun”, but I’m also open to something serious should that girl come along. I don’t feel like taking a girl out on multiple dates just to get her into bed, I think that’s boring and a waste of time for both of us, and actually pretty unkind.
So now that I’ve put it all out there, I’ll give you a little background about me… I grew up in Westchester, graduated from a good college, started and ran my own company for a while, I live alone (with 2 cats), and I prefer deep/spiritual conversation to jet-skis. Don’t get the wrong idea, I’m not a pretentious a**, I am always up for fun and think jet-skis are pretty cool; I do drive a motorcycle. I also work as a bartender one night a week.
Below I’ve listed some music/movies that I’m into (always a nice way to make a connection with someone ? )
Some other things I think are cool: Inception, anything Daniel Day Lewis, good vegetarian food, Stepbrothers, Death Cab for Cutie, David Bowie, yeah yeah yeahs, metric, bad religion, interpol, Arcade Fire, the Office, reno 911, always sunny, Michael Keaton, Lana Del Ray, the killers, Run DMC, and of course, the Safety Dance.
